Curious what folks think are underrated/underacknowledged shows. We all pretty much know the biggies Cornell/Veneta etc, but sometimes a little gem kind of gets you for some reason or other.....Personally I like 11/21/73, 6/23/74, 5/26/77

Would like to make the case for 2 shows from 1981:

9/25/81 at Lehigh University. Has my pick for most underrated Scarlet>Fire and a super hot Samson. Whole show is good. Also,

5/1/81 at Hampton, Va. My favorite Althea and a Let it Grow>Deal that ends the 1st set on fire.

Underrated I think mostly b/c sound quality is not tops...but more than worth the DL b/c of the quality of the playing in both shows.

Boston was my first show. Wish I knew what a gem I was seeing. Thanks to this site it was the first time I had ever heard it again after nearly 30 years. Love Archive.org!

6-7-77 is the most underrated, underreviewed, overshadowed and overlooked show...IMHO.

That's a good pick, liranfa. 1983 has so few good soundboards that, for me, it's difficult to correctly gauge it's place in Dead history. I know the Greek shows were a good time but only the first set of day two is available in soundboard source, which is a real pity.
Basically, 1983 is under-represented almost entirely! The standouts are 4-26, 9-2, 10-12, 10-15, 10-28 and your show, 12-28.
